Call for applications for Gasworks’ first ‘event’ focused residency
Open to any non-UK based artist
Deadline for application: Monday 4 March 2013
This new residency at Gasworks aims to support the development of art practices that might not normally thrive within existing residency models.
Applicants are invited to propose a series of exploratory works with public outcomes. We are looking for experimental practices, innovative and experimental approaches to contemporary performance, and proposals that question contemporary understandings of these terms.
With this new model, the residency can be less studio-based with process instead taking precedent, in the form of a series of \’events\’ or public outcomes, illustrating stages of work-in-progress. The resulting works could take the form of interventions, community or socially engaged projects, performances, workshops, ephemeral works, happenings, lectures, presentations, theatrical productions or other event-based activities.
The residency is open to non-UK based contemporary visual artists, including those with curatorial practices, working in any medium.
Applicants working in pairs or small groups may apply, but please note that the residency provision covers the costs and space for one artist to undertake the residency, so any extra financial support required will need to be secured by the applicants themselves.
Applying artists should have a good level of spoken English, and should feel comfortable engaging in artistic discussions in English.
Before applying, please read the Information and Guidelines for application, downloadable here.
Applications should be emailed to:
